Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Malik Edwards regards golf as an old man's game--until he sees a young black golfer on TV. But where does a kid living in Brooklyn get the gear or the money to play--and where can he play?

Synopsis:

Malik Edwards has never had any intention of playing golf. In his mind, golf is a game played by old, flabby men wearing funny pants and hats. Then one day while channel surfing he sees a young black golfer being cheered on by a crowd of adoring fans. Suddenly golf's image changes for Malik. Yet, even if he wanted to play, where would he get the gear or the money? And where is a kid living in Brooklyn, New York, supposed to play golf? Malik's growing desire to learn the sport of golf helps him overcome these obstacles, but the biggest obstacle-the ridicule of his friends-still sits in his path.
